Title: Micro & Nanofabrication for Biosensors
Biography: Sushanta K. Mitra
In recent years there is a significant development in micro and nanotechnology that has enabled fabrication of fine micro/nanostructures, which are often used as building-block towards producing sensors which are specific, selective and sensitive towards number of key biomolecules. The talk will focus on how such micro/nanofabrication tools coupled with fundamental developments in physics and chemistry can create next generation sensors that can be used for monitoring deadly virus like Dengue NS1, food borne pathogen like Listeria monocytogenes, water borne pathogens like E. coli and cardiac markers like myoglobin for early diagnostics of heart attack. The talk will end with example of a translational and transformative research which allows the laboratory proto-type to be tested in field and end-user communities.
